Re: DeCoursey, MO abt. 1870
I believe you are speaking of Lewis Nimrod DeCoursey who married Melissa Amanda Hill on 15 Dec. 1867.Melissa was born 19 May 1849 in Johnson County, Indiana and died 30 August 1917 in Millport, Knox County, Missouri. They had 5 children that I know of: David, John, Lillian Marie, Charles and Mary Ellen.Melissa's parents were James MatsonHill (ca 1826-1900) and Pauline Legan (ca 1828-1903). I am distantly related to this family through the Legans and have more that I will be glad to share with you.You can email me [email protected]
This family moved from Johnson County, Indiana to Knox County, Missouri in the late 1860's. Lewis and Melissa and Melissa's parents are buried there.
